Our team appreciates all their commitment and hard work. Romania is a beautiful and unique country and deserves to be discovered by travelers from all over the world. Romania has all forms of relief: Carpathian Mountains, Black Sea beaches, Danube Delta Biosphere Reservation, plateaus, valleys, meadows, plains, beautiful rivers, amazing caves, underground icebergs and glacial lakes.
For five wonderful days we’ve connected with people from each corner of the world and we’ve had the occasion to discover all the sectors. All countries and companies had astonishing and colorful stands, equipped with promotion materials, such as flyers, brochures, pens, calendars, toys, souvenirs, bags, refrigerator magnets, cups, books, stress balls, all personalized with their logo and contact details. Also, some exhibitors choose to promote their country organizing different activities, like: cooking session, writing session, photo session, mascots, henna tattoos on hands, traditional dances as you can see in the FITUR film below:
In the following lines, we will present the stands which impressed us more at FITUR 2017.
